Banana Tea Bread Recipe

Top Review by Honeybeee

Wanted a very easy recipe for guests in the afternoon...and this was it! Very easy and simple. I did make some alterations though. Instead of using all white sugar, I substitute half of the specified amount with brown sugar. It gave a nice rich brown texture. Also, instead of shortening, I used half butter and half vegetable oil. Tasted very good. Thank you for posting it. A definite 5 star rating!
